Remove eyelid hernias without surgery
The eyes are a unique, complex organ in our body. The beauty of our face is emphasized not only by the shape and color of the eyes, but also by the skin around the eyes. Often, the periorbital zone is able to give away not only our age, but also health problems.
Swelling under the eyes, the appearance of so-called “bags” in the area of the lower eyelid is a very common phenomenon. Often this problem brings a lot of trouble to a person, giving the face a tired, painful appearance.
CAUSES OF SWELLING UNDER THE EYES
Puffiness under the eyes can be temporary, sometimes associated with food preferences (salty, spicy food), a lot of liquid drunk before going to bed, alcohol, poor physical activity. Usually manifests itself after a night’s sleep and may decrease or disappear altogether during the day. Such frequent exposure to the thin, delicate, sensitive skin around the eyes leads to its overgrowth.
With age, puffiness can be visualized constantly, in the area of the lower eyelid, hernial bags can form, adding age to the person. Hernias of the eyelids can appear at a young age. Due to the individual Constitution of the eye socket, genetic predisposition also matters.
WHAT IS A HERNIATED EYELID?
Eyelid hernias are hypertrophied edematous overgrown adipose tissue. The eyeball is separated from the eye socket by the periorbital fiber, which performs a protective, cushioning function. Periorbital fat is separated from the skin of the eyelids by a septum – a membrane that holds it inside the eye socket.
Periorbital hernias are not just a cosmetic defect. Often, an enlarged, overgrown subcutaneous fat in the eye socket area can cause General discomfort, rapid eye fatigue, and decreased clarity and visual acuity. Sometimes the tear duct is compressed by periorbital fat, leading to involuntary lacrimation. Sometimes this kind of problem is associated with a disease of the internal organs.
To avoid the negative consequences of a herniated eyelid, you need to start preventive measures at the first symptoms. The correct option is to first find out the cause, perhaps there are problems with diseases of internal organs, such as kidneys. Frequent conjunctivitis, allergic rhinitis, sinus inflammation can also provoke excessive puffiness. Sometimes, women may experience increased swelling in the periorbital zone during a certain phase of the menstrual cycle. This may be due to hormonal disorders.
Prevention is to follow certain rules in the selection of cosmetics. They must be specially designed for the delicate skin around the eyes, they must include draining, strengthening substances that carefully care for the delicate skin around the eyes.
Lymphatic drainage massages can also have a positive effect on both the face and the entire body. The effect can be hardware procedures such as criolifting, ultrasound therapy.
HOW TO REMOVE EYELID HERNIAS?
A more vivid, prolonged effect can be provided by mesotherapy of the periorbital zone. An excellent result is provided by the correlation of hernia bags with indirect lipolytics (for example, MesoSlim MesoExpert), which are indicated for injection in this zone. The composition of these drugs include ingredients that are able to provide lippolis hypertrophied adipose tissue. In addition, additional ingredients mannitol, rutin, and vitamin C can reduce puffiness, normalize the condition of capillary walls, and strengthen the thin skin around the eyes.
Such procedures must be done in a course to achieve a positive result from lipolytic correction. The course is prescribed by a cosmetologist and its duration depends on the initial state of the gyzhevy bags, the patient’s age, and their individual characteristics. It is very advisable to work with the quality of the skin after lipolytic correction of hernias of the eyelids, moisturizing and compacting it, stimulating the production of collagen and elastin fibers. To do this, use the classic mesotherapy with the use of a complex of preparations.
Also, to moisturize the thin, dehydrated skin around the eyes, you can recommend preparations containing hyaluronic acid. In any case, an individual consultation of a cosmetologist is required for each individual patient!
Mesotherapy procedure is usually well tolerated by patients, adverse effects can be noted the redness at the puncture site, mikrogematomy, bruises, swelling.
Unfortunately, sometimes it happens that mesotherapy procedures can not always solve the problem of hernias of the lower and upper eyelid. Sometimes hernias can only be removed surgically by resorting to the blepharoplasty procedure. Only experienced plastic surgeons perform this procedure in clinics. It is possible to distinguish the main traditional suture blepharoplasty of the lower eyelid, when the surgeon can use both a scalpel and an inovation laser technology for the incision.
Blepharoplasty can be performed on both the upper and lower eyelid. If there is excess adipose tissue and overhanging skin on both eyelids, then a circular blepharoplasty is performed. Transconjunctival blepharoplasty is performed with a mild degree of hernia protrusion. In this type of operation, the incision is made from the inside of the eyelid. The advantage of this type of operation is the absence of stitches on the skin of the eyelids. In order not to bring the matter to surgical intervention, it is necessary to contact a cosmetologist in time to get competent advice on how to eliminate this complex problem.
And in conclusion, I want to say that a healthy lifestyle, proper nutrition, full sleep can work wonders!
